"I put it on eBay," she proclaimed Wednesday night, to loud GOP applause.
Indeed she did. But she failed to mention, as Tulsa native Paul Harvey says, the rest of the story.
Which is: The jet didn't sell on eBay. The bids didn't meet the minimum price. So the governor's office turned to an old-fashioned broker, who did sell the plane.
And one more thing: The broker sold the plane at a loss. It's sad. Another great Palin story shot down in flames.
TRUTHINESS UPDATE: Media reports today note that John McCain is still peddling this story. The money quote: "You know what I enjoyed the most? She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor and sold it on eBay—made a profit," McCain said today.
As the saying goes, never let the truth stand in the way of a good story.
